Audition: Summer Shows

Location: 
Northfield Arts Guild Theater, 411 Third Street W.

The Northfield Arts Guild will host February auditions for the remaining shows in their Journey Home Theater Season. Combined auditions for Mansfield Park and The Odyssey are on February 25 – 26.  Both shows perform in the summer.

The Guild Theater celebrates color inclusive casting. All are welcome! 

Rehearsals for Mansfield Park will begin in early May. Mansfield Park performs weekends June 21-29 at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater.  Not only a love story, Mansfield Park explores important issues such as slavery, the oppressive nature of idealized femininity, women’s education and standing up for one’s principles and desires.  This moral satire is directed by Rachel Haider.

Rehearsals for The Odyssey begin in mid June. The Odyssey performances are weekends August 2-11. This dramatic adaptation begins with a modern young woman who is struggling to understand a translation of Homer’s classic tale. A muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena–a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home.  The Odyssey is directed by Marc Robinson.

Those auditioning for Mansfield Park and The Odyssey should prepare a 1-minute monologue. Auditions will include a brief and simple movement segment. Register for a time slot at northfieldartsguild.org/theater/auditions or by calling 507-645-8877.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
